Descrizione

Having a problem deciding which side of the fence you are on, Liberal or Conservative? Confused about the deficit versus debt issue? Definitely doped out as to why the politicians in Washington can't seem to accomplish what you want them to do? Here is a plan to wipe out years of accumulated rust in the lawmaking pipes in the corridors of Congress. Our current Constitution is a marvel of simplicity and, at the same time, a conglomeration of complexity. It is not easy to try to govern, but it is just as difficult for the governed to be favorably inclined to those whose governing rule is to obfuscate, deceive, steal, and mismanage. All of the above are the result of the Constitution's lack of definition as to the rules and regulations provided to the Congress by the founding fathers of the country. The framers of the Constitution are justifiably not to be blamed for their over sight. How could they look ahead 235 years and forecast the mess into which we have gotten. It is up to us, the living, to make the necessary-and difficult-choices that will enable us to remain as a world symbol of freedom. This book will attempt to be a guideline for the task. John F. Naglee Sr. was employed in the Bell System for thirty-eight years, starting at Bell of Pennsylvania then moving to Bell Labs and AT&T. He retired in 1989, and created his own small business, which he ran for thirteen years. John was educated at the Central High School of Philadelphia (196), Temple University, the US Army and life, and resides in beautiful Central Florida. John is the author of Global Warming and Planet Earth: The Spin Stops Here, a nonfiction work suggesting an alternative cause of Climate Change, and espousing a complete halt to the lunacy of taxpayer-funded space travel.

Preface

Have you recently sat in front of your TV, watching the charades being played by our politicians, and asked the question, Where did we go wrong? Do you think back to the early days of the country and consider that the so-called founding fathers did not do a good job with the Constitution?

They were, after all, just a group of businessmen and farmers who got together to try to determine what would be the best form of government to keep the nation moving forward. They were—don’t forget—just coming off a hair-raising series of battles with the world’s most powerful army, with the loss of those battles meaning their demise, along with their families and friends. They did have one thing in common: a vision of success.

They debated both in public and in private about the various forms of governance they were familiar with from their education in history, law, language, and business. They were led by people whom they trusted and admired. They ended up creating a document that they considered sufficient for the long term and went home to submit it to their several states.

Can you imagine the chagrin when they were forced to return to the debating room and consider the ten amendments that were demanded by the people of their areas, and which the founding fathers had probably considered but had ignored?

Developing the methodology of governance was fairly easy. Providing for the basic rights of the governed is much more difficult unless there is input from the governed, and today’s governed need to have the same input as those from centuries past.

This book will try to be the voice of the people of today’s America. It will try to say to the founding fathers, "Thank you for the effort, but we have some changes that must be made. We will keep to the integrity of your work, but we need to change the way we do business. We are facing things that you could never have imagined during your times, and which are causing your dream to become as a balloon rapidly filling with gas and nearing bursting. We will use your Constitution to effect these changes, because you had the foresight to allow for changes, without regard for the length or breadth of the changes.

"Our rationale for these changes can be found in another document that relates back to the hazardous times in which you lived. You decided to write down the grievances that you had with the foreign monarchy and Parliament, and use the list as a justification for the severance of political ties.

You called it the ‘Declaration of Independence,’¹ and each of you who signed it was acutely aware of the personal consequences of the act. You were, after all, British citizens, and the British throne and Parliament had long ago established the severe punishment for treasonable acts. In spite of this, the statement you made was magnificent.

When in the course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation. We hold these truths to be self-evident …

These opening phrases of the Declaration of Independence of the people, of the soon-to-be-called United States of America, are without doubt the most famous words ever written by man, with documents such as the Magna Carta notwithstanding. I doubt whether most of the people on this planet have seen or heard them. I also doubt whether, having heard them, the people would laugh at them and ignore the deeply held concepts involved in their writing.

Here is a document that has relevance to all inhabitants of all nations. The truths that are so self-evident are those truths that are just under the surface of all people regardless of their circumstances in life. Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness are not always available to all people, but they are still the God-given right of those people. It has always been so, and it will continue to be so even though certain rulers seem unable to accept that fact.

The Declaration of Independence, like the Constitution of the United States, is a living document, which means that it should become part of each citizen’s mantra on life. Yes, the list of grievances contained in the body of the text are those not always suffered by the people today, but with a little revising, keeping the soul of the document intact, we may list those grievances that are self-evident to the citizens of the United States. By using the rationale of the founding fathers to our advantage, we may create another declaration and insist that our grievances be addressed to our satisfaction.

There are twenty-seven items on the list of grievances in the Declaration. It is possible to highlight eight of these that were applied to the King of Great Britain as a person, and which, with almost no forethought, successfully address the problems that Americans face today in their relationship with their legislative, executive, and judicial branch of federal governance. Later chapters will address many more grievances, as we build our new Declaration of Independence.

The items repeated here in the original form, using the outdated language of 1776, are those most obvious to the American citizen of today. The he in each statement is the King of England, and in the rewrite that follows each item, the he is the federal government. Let’s do some updating:

He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.

(He has created a partisan approach in the Legislature which denies the establishment of needed Laws solely because they are offered by the opposition party.)

He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.

(He has not enforced laws that are on the books of the Congress and which are needed by the Citizens of the several States to help them in their daily lives.)

He has endeavoured to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose obstructing the Laws of Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither, and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands.

(He has continually refused to protect our borders from illegal migrations.)

He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people, and eat out their substance.

(He has expanded the size and scope of the Federal Government and its spending of taxpayer monies.)

He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil Power.

(He has ordered the Military to engage in wars without the consent of Congress.)

He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation.

(He has committed our Military to serve under the command of foreigners in NATO, the UN, and other Pacts.)

For imposing taxes on us without our consent.

(He has ignored the will of the people in the establishment of costly programs.)

He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages, whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.

(He has refused to fight the drug cartels in their bloody wars.)

The major accomplishment of this undertaking will be to force a convening of a Constitutional Convention with the charter to rewrite the existing Constitution, maintaining the integrity of the original, but updating to alleviate the myriad problems that we have imposed on ourselves, especially during the last few years of diversity.

When and where was the last National Convention held? Was it in 1787 in Philadelphia? No, not really! It was 1861, and it was convened in Montgomery, Alabama². The result of the meeting was the Constitution of the Confederate States of America originally proposed to the seven states on the eleventh day of March 1861. I have included Article 1 as attachment A so that the reader may compare the two Constitutions.

With the exception of seven paragraphs that were the underlying cause of the outbreak of war, the constitution is remarkably similar to the United States Constitution. I believe that the framers of that
